Mercedes remains a seemingly unstoppable force in F1, winning every world championship since the beginning of the hybrid era in 2014. But who is to blame for Mercedes going unchallenged during this period? Is F1's dominant team the bad guy, or should the finger be pointed elsewhere after seven years of unbroken success?

The truth is there is no better team than Mercedes for forward thinking development and innovation. The other teams cannot keep up with them . So the FIA ban this and ban that instead of letting the teams innovate and produce their own solutions, the FIA is killing the sport

I think the FIA is the only problem. I remember my mom talking about in the 70s and 80s the FIA sided more on rules and regulations with Ferrari, after that there was a small equal ground in the late 80s through the mid 2000s with Ferrari, Williams, McLaren, and even Renault having success. But since 2012 it almost seems like the FIA wants to keep the new boys happy. Because Mercedes struggled badly in 2012-2013 but all of the sudden the FIA hands them a overnight fix with hybrid engines that they just happen to be the leading manufacturer of. But what do I know, Im still new to F1 politics and I’m an Iceman fan.

First of all: let's not talk F1 down too much, I think 2020 was a great season. But apart from big names letting the sport down, risk-averse driver pairing is a major contributor to predictability: we used to have Hamilton vs Rosberg, Vettel vs Webber, Verstappen vs Ricciardo... now too much of intra-team rivalry has been lost.

Some teams go in the wrong direction every year. But ALL BUT ONE team failing year-after-year is symptom of a far deeper problem. Simple answer, it’s the ruling body and the ruling team, and their long-running 69-ing relationship. Schumacher dominated 2002 & 2004, and 2003 had major changes to race format while 2005 chaned the racing entirely. Vettel dominated 2011, and FIA specifically outlawed Red Bull's 2010-11 tech. [Not counting 2014, because those changes were long planned, but it’s still worth mentioning the secret tyre tests with Pirelli that Merc fanboys are so quick to defend with series of whataboutisms.] When Merc dominated at first, FIA changed the aero (which wasn’t in fact Merc’s advantage) to be more expensive and big-budget research-oriented (Guess who the richest automobile manufacturer is among these 10! Go on, make a guess!), and then stagnated the regulations for 4 years. And then yet again all the tyres were changed in 2019 after non-Merc cars started winning races regularly.

I'm newer to F1 but it seems that the FIA would be to blame in large part when a single team dominates for basically a whole decade. They're setting and monitoring rules yet they've done nothing but contribute to this gap between teams. I mean, can we pretend Ferrari isn't working 24/7 on making a better car? Or any of these constructors for that matter? I refuse to believe that Mercedes is just "better" than everyone, every year. In any major sport it's so tough to repeat championships. Seven is just unheard of, and really just reflects on the stagnation of the sport more than anything. other sports seem more timely in their way to address lopsided outcomes. The fact that Bottas finishes ahead of Verstappen as a driver just proves to me that this sport is flawed. Anyone watching can see Max is better driver yet F1 hasn't found a way to reward something like that. It's all very lopsided IMO. F1 just fails with the lack of leadership from the FIA.

What specifically have the FIA done in your opinion? Or not done? What rules could it have changed that it didn't - or what system could it have put in to change things? As for Verstappen - he's twice had his chance to join Mercedes and usurp Bottas so is it Bottas' fault that Max is at Red Bull?

There have always been dominant teams ever since F1 began, and even before that - think of the pre-war "silver arrows", Audi and Mercedes, Alfa Romeo immediately post-war. Of course the vastly improved reliability factor nowadays accentuates this. but even back in those times the domination of the various British "garagiste" teams until Ferarri's steamroller of the early 2000's. Remember McLaren's utter domination, then Williams - in both cases there were cries to peg them back. I can't recall, however, there having been much, if any such cries against an even more dominance - that of the Cosworth DFV. That was lauded throughout it's glittering career (except maybe around Maranello). Maybe it's just a personality thing with teams.

When Ferrari were dominating, FIA targeted their strong points directly to stop them. No unlimited testing, reduced bargeboards and new tyre rules. 3 huge changes, DIRECTLY to stop Ferrari. And it worked. Now look at the state of F1. Merc has been much more dominant and for much longer. FIA just sat there and waited. People are defending FIA with DAS bans and quali mode bans. Come on. Back in the day they shot a nuclear missile to Ferrari's face in order to stop them. With those changes they just scraped Merc with a small knife. No other team has been this dominant because FIA always intervened. Not for Mercs tho. Even tho they knew about the engine regs earlier, even tho they did illegal secret tyre tests with Pirelli (just google it). Aero is way too complex, engines are spaceship level complex, cost of entry is raised, one team has been dominating for years and even experienced teams can not challenge them; no wonder no one is interested in getting into F1. We even lost Honda. All this combined is killing this sport slowly and I don't think they realise it.

As a new fan, I'll say something controversial. I don't think FIA should even the playing field. Look, we all hate watching drivers struggle to get first, although what I like about F1 is that its as much as a sport for engineers as it is for drivers. I think it is awful that all Formula E cars are the same, of all the technology out there, it is electric vehicles that need that competitive edge to innovate and get better. In the long term, I think Formula 1 is as much about R&D which goes into our own civilian production cars as it is about developing driver skill. There is so much to be gained that cannot be found anywhere else when tracks are used as labs for research. It gives a competitive element to R&D which is incredibly important to the way cars are used today. How much have Mercedes found out about hybrid engines on the track that they may put into cars on the road? How much have the other teams learned that they use as well. How much have others who don't even race been taking design notes? Besides, it may suck now that Mercedes has dominated the track since 2014, but that will make it all the more satisfying when somebody finally cracks the code and finds a winning "formula" ;) Just give it a little patience, it'll get there. When it does, we'll all be happier for having waited.

fans complain, but those old enough know that this is common, before mercedes their was red bull, and in the era of Schumi, it was ferrari ferrari ferrari. of course their were the spells at mclaren as well. so its not all together uncommon but for those new to the sport. But indeed the sport would be "better" if mid pack teams were not so mid pack. And that would be the case had it not been for the stewards changing the rules of f1 which sterilzed the sport. arguably the most race damaging rule being refueling. In my opinion Its the loss of refueling thats really caused the mess we have today. not withstanding the fact the teams have simply not been able to match merc. Refueling has been the xfactor that made fast teams slow down and often be surpassed by slower teams. Errors in the pits, errors misjudging fuel amounts, misjudging pit strategy. additional time to tire change, a number of issue that simply slowed leading cars down giving slower cars a fighting change to podium or even win. without refueling all that has be taken away, even worse, pit times have lowered a further 2 seconds. tires are no longer a major factor to race wins. in fact one can say much of the time a race is won or loss in the very first turn.

There are 10 teams in F1 and 9 of them can't seem to find the solution to the formula. To make matters worse, when other teams tried to close the gaps, their solutions got discarded by the FIA (Ferrari's allegedly illegal engine did at least provide some competitiveness, RedBull and their flexi wings keep being clamped down on and we all know Aero is RedBull's strength, Renault had their advanced braking system banned as well). The token system has been reintroduced and we have all seen how that adversely affected the 2014-2016 seasons in terms of competitiveness.

It's all Valtteri Bottas's fault! Merc was always going to dominate this era, but at least we had an opportunity to have a Senna/Prost type of race era where we could have watched 2 of the best drivers fight each other in equal machinery for the crown. Instead, all we've gotten is Hamilton being his brilliant self while Bottas gets practically eliminated from the championship less than halfway through the season. What would this era have been like had we seen Alonso in an unbiased German team vs Hamilton, prime Vettel, Ricciardo, or Verstappen in his current form against Hamilton? It would have been exciting at the top at the very least. All those guys I mentioned at the top were better than Rosberg whom managed to actually push Hamilton and at least beat him in one occasion. Bottas's mediocrity has killed the top of the grid. I still think Hamilton would have beaten all of the above, but I promise he would not have won 4 straight championships in a row.

Ah yes the FIA are solely to blame... even though they aren't the only ones who decide on the rules 🤫🤫 The fia simply don't have the power to just change the rules when they like. The old structure of the sport, I.e the strategy group consisting of the 6 'big' teams of the day, the Fia and Bernie, all signed off on the rules and the 3 groups had equal voting weights - that is maybe where you folk should start to look for blame

This channel was once a place to watch great content from trusted journalists - even when earlier content was low-production. Having accelerated to nearly 500k subscribers, the content has hit a gravel trap having deviated from reporting on recent/developing events to becoming weak opinion pieces on past seasons, where the outcomes (and consequences) are known and probably forgotten. For example, a poor 2014 for Red Bull, Vettel and Ferrari had massive consequences on those three, plus Arrivabene, Alonso, Ricciardo, Kyvat, Veratappen, Sainz, Renault, Williams etc etc. There is good and bad involved in most events, therefore analysing multiple interacting p parties at a high-level leads to poor conclusions.

You didn't talk about FIA who have literally sought to ban every technological innovation by any team instead of making it available to all teams the next season. The DAS system was not banned mid-season, while any other innovations by other teams in the past years were banned mid-season. This is unfair.

These are power unit regulations that have made F1 much more expensive than it ever was. They were also intended to attract new manufacturers to F1. Cosworth left, Honda joined and are now on their way out. The entire era has been a failure, but the FIA are determined to die on this hill. When other teams dominated, the FIA were quick to ban their advantages, but they won’t do a thing to Mercedes, and it’s not like we have close championships. You only need to look at the previous engine era to see what competition is. There were plans to change up the power units but these were canceled after no new manufacturers took interest (imagine that). The hybrid era has failed on every single level. Costs, entries, competition, and overtaking.

You can’t help it if MB have a good reliable engine and the other makes don’t...simplicity of the situation, get the motor right and competitive then the domination will stop. Couples with the policy of the team all for on and one for all clearly been a winner for MB thyme work as a team and done it the very best of their ability resulting in being the best in F1......so the argument about fans not liking the domination I respectively disagree. I’d like to see the other teams up there with competitive cars yes, but don’t hold a gun to the best team in the business at present. Pity teams like Audi and Porsche from the Le Mans don’t get involved with F1 drivetrains it would change the dynamic for sure. Hopefully this year Ferrari could perhaps find the form of former years to be a major competitor. I’d like to see Aston Martin team this year with. Aston drivetrain then we may have some competition for MB.

9:09 Who do I blame? Well. After it became clear that the engine blue print was locked after the initial concept and Mercedes the only one to get the design right - giving them 10-15% more power, only one culprit stays: regulation. If you don't let development catch up properly or level the playing field at some point, you always end up with a gap due to the leader not spending resources on a solved problem. That means more development time on other areas. It's very easy to claim that everybody else is useless for 7 years. But I seriously doubt that this is the case. To stay on top for such a long period only works if there is an advantage that can't be catched up to. Such advantages came up again and again in the history of Formula 1 - but never were they kept for such a long period. That doesn't diminish the enormous efforts of Mercedes as they perfectly understood to keep that edge over the best engineers in the world. But there are claims that it's basically impossible to build a race winning car without building engine & chassis in one team.

They can even invest in other teams and give them the complete plans to the last winning car to help make them money through investment. No.... I'm wrong? No money for investment in an F1 team?

Universally, we can all agree that the Turbo Hybrid era of F1 is an absolute joke. From the sound, to the team politics, to the massive spike in development costs, to the top 3 dominated by the same teams for 6 years, to the absolute stagnation in innovation. All for the sake of an engine technology that's already been made obsolete at this point by evs.
